    Why can't we all just get along?

    How long would you sail with a guy who is constantly very late to the line, can't ever see a shift coming, will not listen to his tactician (or anyone else on the boat) and always brags about being the best sailor ever. Admittedly terrible analogy, but how this guy's approval rating is ever over 20% baffles me.

    Movies that messed you up as a kid

    Deliverance. I was 12. Still can't see Ned Beatty without thinking about mountain men.

    Winter battery storage.

    I'm looking for a solar trickle charger. Boat is on stands 40 miles away and I don't have access to power when I'm not there. Anyone have experience and/ or a better idea?

    Manhasset Fall Series

    Congrats to all who sailed and to Paul, Nordly's and E.Z. Breeze was ok for the most part and it was a nice way to end the season. Manhasset RC did a great job, and the food was better than average. Beer was cold and not flat. I like the regatta and hope it continues.

    What's Your Go-To Cocktail and How Do You Make It?

    Painkiller, name of my boat. 4 parts pineapple, 1 part orange juice 1 part cream of coconut and as much Pussers Rum as you want. Grate some fresh nutmeg over the top. I'm sure anyone who has gone to the Annapolis boat show knows the recipe.

    J35 Anarchist

    I just replaced the head on my 1983 j35. The head is a twist and lock jabsco. Four bolts secure the head to the fiberglass platform on which it is mounted. The two bolts on the aft side are accessible to put nuts on. There is a cutout for the thruhull lever. I cannot access the two nuts on the forward side of the plarform. I was going to use either sheetmetal screws and start new holes of use mollybolts. Any better ideas? TIA.

    Two questions: First, in a 1983 J35, is it a 2gm or 3gm Yanmar? Engine plate is blank and no other identifying info. The impeller I bought is listed for both models. Second question-I have two planks that run down the center of the cabin sole. They are both ten inches wide, 1/2 inch thick and one is sixty inches long. I didn't measure the second, but it looks approximately 36 inches long. They are soft and I want to replace with synthetic. I am looking at plas teak. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.

    My vote is to do it. I bought a J35 last year and spent the first season just getting stuff sorted out. Do get a survey. I just finished prepping and painting bottom and can't wait to get sailing again. Good luck!

    Dripless Shaft Seal

    I have a bellows type dripless shaft seal on my J 35 that I want to replace. Should I replace with same seal or is there something better? TIA.

    New, to me, J35

    There's also one in City Island. The owner did not think it was that much faster.
